The room itself was fantastic, a huge king size bed, comfortable, loads of pillows. There was a sofa and chair and table, with a huge TV. We also had a kitchen area with fridgefreezer and microwave, hob and ice maker in the freezer. The room also had a safe. The bathroom was a fair size, both shower and bath. The room was quiet and clean.

I think they disturbed a lot of other guests as well unfortunately....
